ANNAPOLIS, Md. - February 28, 2012 (Investorideas.com renewable energy/green newswire) Clean Wind Energy Tower, Inc. (OTCBB:CWET) (the "Company") is pleased to announce today that the Company has been notified by the United States Department of the Interior's Bureau of Reclamation that it may proceed with the local zoning process and site evaluations. This notification is in response to the Company's February 15, 2012 application to the Bureau of Reclamation for permission to lease a substantial parcel of property located in the southwestern United States, suitable for the development and construction of a Downdraft Tower.
Clean Wind Energy is aggressively pursuing the building of its first Renewable Energy Downdraft Tower in the United States and had applied for a Temporary Use Permit in order to enable access to the site to evaluate a variety of issues including zoning, performing a preliminary geological survey and a general site evaluation along with other environmental assessments.
This region of the southwest United States provides the proper weather profiles, proximity to the power grid, and other ingredients beneficial to the operation of a Downdraft Tower, and has been targeted as a prime region for alternative energy projects.
Ron Pickett, President & CEO stated: "The selection of what we believe to be a suitable site upon which to build our first Tower is a critical milestone in our Company's transition from a Research and Development Stage company to the development of our first project."
Abundant, Clean, Affordable Energy
As designed, the Company anticipates that each Downdraft Tower could generate enough electricity to power up to 1,600,000 homes using the guidelines set forth in the California Statewide Residential Appliance Saturation Study, 2004. As an independent power producer of clean, renewable energy, the Company will not be selling power directly to consumers but rather to the grid. As currently designed, the Company anticipates that each Downdraft Tower will be capable of generating 1,100 megawatts per hour of salable electricity to the grid. One megawatt equates to 1,000,000 watts or 1,000 kilowatts of electricity. Currently, avoided costs per kilowatt in California are running approximately $0.11 per kilowatt hour.
